Barons De Rothschild (Lafite) Los Vascos Estate Bottled Sauvignon Blanc
$102.19 / case(12)
Los vascos’ sauvignon blanc is made from grapes purchased on long term contracts with growers in the casablanca and curico regions. The vintages all offer very pure fruit and a lively refreshing palate. This wine has remarkable aromatic expression in the bouquet with lemon grapefruit and exotic fruit enhanced by the characteristic boxwood aroma of the sauvignon. A frost-free spring with warm temperatures gave way to a rainless summer with historical peaks of 39. 6° c during march. In the spring light rains helped to retain the soil’s moisture without affecting the grapes. Total rainfall between may and august was 418 mm. Tasting notes (at bottling) pale yellow colour with glints of green. The nose offers aromas of fresh pineapple pear green apple and honeydew melon combined with citrus notes of grapefruit and lime and hints of tarragon and thyme. The palate has exceptionally well- balanced acidity with a pleasant coating sensation and good persistence.

Tastings are carried out all over the bordeaux region to find the most successful wines of the year with a view to creating blends in the tradition of the finest bordeaux that favour balance over woodiness. The wines selected are mainly from the entre-deux-mers. 2016 has been a remarkable vintage in the bordeaux region reminiscent of the legendary 1990 in terms of both quantity and quality! It was a fairly challenging year for winegrowers with a very wet start to the growth cycle (800 mm of rain over the first six months of the year) a very dry period from 1 july to 13 september and finally localized thunderstorms and a beautiful indian summer that enabled the grapes to reach optimal ripeness. Excluding the areas affected by frost hail or outbreaks of mildew and in contrast to the rest of france’s vineyards overall yields this year in bordeaux were the highest since 201
